Lincoln and I can’t thank you enough for selecting me as Best Local Artist and for selecting The Studio for Best Activities/Programs/Camps for Kids in the Best of Awards for 2020. We appreciate your support now more than ever. It’s been an unusual year for sure and we are grateful to everyone who has encouraged and supported us through this difficult year.

One of the most popular workshops that we have at The Studio is Kid’s Pet Portraits Workshop. Just send a photo in advance and we’ll have the canvas ready and work with your young artist to make an amazing portrait of their pet. This workshop is so much fun! We only hold this session twice a year so register now. This is for ages 6-13.

Sunflower Fields

A fun evening with lots of laughs painting these beautiful mini sunflower fields. What an amazing job everyone did….and they looked great all framed up and ready to hang as soon as they got home. Super!

Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise.” -Paul McCartney

Paper and Paint on canvas…inspired by the beautiful song by Paul McCartney

Yesterday afternoon Lincoln and I walked along Happy Creek. We also took a look at the monument that was placed in memory of the Warren County families and landowners displaced to form Shenandoah National Park. It’s a very nice memorial and beautifully placed by the creek. And, of course, Lincoln enjoyed the “sniffs” along the creek bank.

Terri has been coming to The Studio for some time now to paint pets….and she has a LOT! She is painting each one that she has or has had to hang as a grouping. This is the one she did on Friday at Open Studio. They are turning out great! Can’t wait to see the “Portrait Wall” she is creating.
